"480 Minutes" - Best Bay Area Music of 2011

Last Friday we unveiled our top 50 songs and top 50 albums of 2011 during the year-end best-of edition of 480 Minutes.  Some were shocked, some were appalled, most were pretty OK with the outcome.

This week we focus in on the top songs and releases by San Francisco Bay Area artist in 2011.  Starting at 11 a.m. (Pacific Time) we will count down the top 10 Bay Area songs of 2011.  Another 20 or so great Bay Area songs from 2011 will be sprinkled throughout the rest of the program which, as always, runs from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Pacific Time.

Also, since it's the end of the year and we are not playing any new releases until 2012, a larger portion than usual of 480 Minutes this week and next will be dedicated to BAGeL Radio classics.  Mmmm, classics.  Marissa already got her requests in...where are yours?

Locals should tune in so they know which local acts they need to get out and see and support in 2012.  Non-locals should tune in to hear why the Bay Area is such an amazing place for music these days.  Those unsure if they are locals or non-locals should ask Santa for a map.

Looking forward to sharing the best Bay Area music of 2011 with you.
